Jenkins Health Care
The Best of Care Close to Home
How much does it cost to live in one of our care homes?
Our fees vary across each care home and are based on an assessment of individual care needs. Prices will be discussed with potential residents and their families, where appropriate, on an individual basis, prior to entering the home.
People may be eligible for funded or contributions towards the cost of care, depending upon circumstances. Each home manager will provide information about local contacts where you can find out more information on this matter.
What happens if my needs change?
Each resident in our care has a full assessment of needs before they move into one of our care homes. Individual’s need will be monitored and reviewed at regular intervals to ensure that their care and support is maintained at the appropriate level. These ongoing assessments allow us to ensure we are providing for the needs of each individual.
Many of our homes offer a range of care services and can accommodate people with varying levels of need. If this is not the case we will work closely with the resident and their families to find a suitable alternative.
Can I view a my chosen home?
Yes. We would recommend that anyone considering moving into care made at least one visit to the potential homes. Visits can be arranged with the sites if you wish to make an appointment with the home manager.
When can I visit my relative in one of your homes?
Anytime. All of our Care homes have an open visiting policy and people are welcome to visit their friends and family at any time. We do have “protected meal times” to ensure a pleasant dining experience and therefore would ask that any visitors arrive before mealtimes commence. If you would like to join your relative for a meal just ask a member of staff in advance and this can be arranged.
How is the quality of your care homes monitored?
The purpose of registration and inspection is to guarantee the standard of care you are entitled to receive. In order to be registered, a home has to comply with the law and also with the registering Authority’s own guidelines. These specify the high standards required, for example the room sizes, number of bathrooms and toilets, staffing levels, food, services and facilities, fire safety and records to be kept. Each home is regularly inspected.

Do your care homes offer a variety of meals?
Yes. We work hard to ensure we meet the dietary requirements of our residents and all our homes provide a menu to ensure nutritious and balanced diets. There is always a choice of fresh and delishous meals prepared onsite by our chefs.
What Activities are avilable at your homes?
There are a range of activities available in each of our homes. These are tailored to the individuals our care and therefore vary across sites. Typical activities include; arts and crafts, baking, reminiscence, music therapy, quizzes and gardening. All our sites have access to a mini-bus so residents can enjoy day trips to local attractions and shops.
Can I bring my own belongings into your care homes?
Yes. All our homes are designed to ensure comfort and a homely atmosphere. We encourage residents to bring in some of their own belongings to make sure they feel as relaxed and as at home as possible.
